Just Announced!!! 102.3 FM The Coyote Welcomes Joe Nichols September 15

The Coyote 102.3 FM welcomes multi-platinum RED BOW recording artist Joe Nichols is one of country music’s most praised traditional country artists. His album “Crickets” debuted in the Top 3 on the Billboard Country Albums Chart and spawned the two multiweek #1, RIAA gold-certified hits “Yeah” and “Sunny and 75.” Nichols has six #1 hits and eight Top 10 singles to his credit, including chart-toppers like “Brokenheartsville,” “Tequila Makes Her Clothes Fall Off” and “Gimmie That Girl,” and Top 10 smashes like “The Impossible,” “If Nobody Believed In You,” “What’s A Guy Gotta Do,” “Size Matters,” “Yeah,” and “I’ll Wait For You.”

The 4 times Grammy nominee is the winner of the Academy of Country Music’s “Top New Male Vocalist” award, the CMT “Breakthrough Video of the Year” award and the prestigious “Horizon Award” from the Country Music Association. Nichols is currently touring the U.S. performing his own headlining dates with his newest album “Never Gets Old” being released in July 2017.

Multi-platinum selling BBR Music Group/ Red Bow Records artist Joe Nichols further cements his staying power with his new album NEVER GETS OLD available July 28.

Written by Steve Moakler and Connie Harrington, the lead single and title track “Never Gets Old” offers a sweet, nostalgic melody delivered by Nichols’ traditional baritone. The title track impacts Country radio on July 17.

Drawing from Country tradition in its truest form, the album reflects a timeless sound and features songwriter heavyweights Chris Stapleton, Zach Crowell, and Shane Minor. Standout tracks include the soaring tribute to the human experience of “We All Carry Something” to the traditional steel-laden sing along “I’d Sing About You” while “Diamonds Make Babies” adds a dose of light-hearted mischief.

Fans of Nichols’ live show will recognize his interpretation of Sir Mix-A-Lot’s “Baby Got Back,” featuring comedian Darren Knight. Nichols has been performing this classic-twist due to popular demand, but this is its first time on a recorded project.

This summer and fall, Nichols brings the nationwide NEVER GETS OLD Tour to festivals and legendary venues.

Backstage at the Egyptian: Interview with Deanna L. Cada

Interview conducted by: Kevin Ray – Egyptian Theatre Intern

Deanna is the executive director at the DeKalb County Community Mental Health Board. I had a chance to interview her about the upcoming Paper Tigers Documentary held at the Egyptian Theatre on May 16th at 7:00pm. This showing is free and open to the pubic, and will include a panel discussion after the film.

Kevin: Tell me a little bit about your organization?

Deanna: My organization is a governmental organization, the DeKalb County Community Mental Health Board (DCCMHB).  We are a unit of county government, authorized by statute to use tax payer dollars (from property taxes) to fund services for DeKalb County resident around mental health, substance use disorders and developmental disabilities.

Kevin: Tell me why you are looking to show this documentary?

Deanna: In partnership with the DeKalb County Juvenile Justice Council, the DeKalb County Youth Services Bureau and Hope Haven, we are committed to making DeKalb County a trauma-informed community.  That means a community that involves understanding, recognizing and responding to the effects of all types of trauma and to help survivors rebuild a sense of control and empowerment.

Kevin: What conversations do you hope will be inspired by you showing this documentary?

Deanna: We hope to engage in conversations about behaviors we label as “bad” or “risky” that are actually a response to trauma in one’s life.  We want people to talk about recognizing that others may have different types of trauma in their lives, and that all people experience and define trauma a little differently.

Kevin: Why did you decide to partner with the Egyptian Theatre?

Deanna: We can’t imagine showcasing an event like this anywhere else.  The Egyptian Theatre is at the center of our community and therefore is a comfortable place, even to deal with uncomfortable topics.

Kevin: What are you looking forward to most about showing this documentary?

Deanna: Engaging others in this important work.  If we can get even 1 or 2 people to become champions of trauma informed care, we have made DeKalb County a better place to be.
